About Kidsport Cowichan
KidSport Cowichan is a community based, volunteer managed sport charity that provides grants for children to participate in a season of sport. The goal is to ensure that kids who might not otherwise be able to access organized sports have the chance to do so. KidSport Cowichan encompasses the entire Cowichan Valley and includes the following communities: Mill Bay, Shawnigan Lake, Cobble Hill, Cowichan Bay, Glenora, Cowichan Station, City of Duncan, Sahtlam, Mesachie Lake, Honeymoon Bay, Town Of Lake Cowichan, Municipality of North Cowichan, Town of Ladysmith, Saltair, North Oyster, Cowichan Tribes, Penelakut Tribe, Chemainus, Halalt, Lake Cowichan and Lyackson First Nations.
Funds raised locally are spent locally and are distributed as grants covering registration fees associated with playing organized sports.
All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial, physical or language barriers that may exist! Staying physically active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout their whole lives. The challenges that come with playing sports also teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership, practice, hard work, dedication and self confidence.
Sport skills are life skills!
